turn out will help romney and obama voters need more motivation to get to the polls times but the reality is we don't know. >> we aren't talk being benghazi and talking about unemployment and the incrose in stod stamps . we are talking about a hurricane. this helps president obama. >> gretchen: and that helps the president, anthony and so what does romney do as everybody is talking about sandy? >> he's doing it. campaign bus is moving people and talking to people and showing leadership and showing change. but it is it difficult to get his message out because it is exclusively about weather patterns and fema and that gives a natural advantage to obama. the president looks for an intervoning cause and unable to do it yourself and the weather may help him. it may wind up that mother nature was the october surprise. >> i agree. >> i agree. >> steve: thank you for yoining us on this busy and storm monday morning. >> thank you. >> steve: straight ahead, she tried to rock the boat. >> i don't care who you vote for as long as it is obama.

simply recalibrating what he thinks he needs to pander to undecided voters. >> what i learned is that governor romney is an abler and more intelligent public figure than he came across in the republican primaries in the spring. and that he had to dumb himself down so much back in the spring in order to appease rush limbaugh, ralph reed, grover norquist. >> you so let him off the hook. and i don't know why you do that. i feel as though that's what the media's frame for dealing with the primaries is. "well, we all know that you have to appeal to the party's base in the primaries, and then you have to move to the center because that's just something that people have to do." why do we let people do that as though that dance was acceptable in a democratic society. >> oh no, i don't think you have to move to the center. i'm only saying he chose to go that route in order -- because he thought he could only get the nomination that way. >> but why didn't you hold him accountable, not for just realizing that he had to do it tactically, but that that is a really corrupt thing to do. inappropriat
